On average, we lose up to 100 hairs a day. Pregnant women, however, are an exception to the rule. Because their hormone levels are very different, pregnant women lose very little hair during pregnancy : on the contrary, their hair even grows a lot ! But unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. After giving birth, the body tries to return to normal and all the hair that was in excess ends up falling out: this is known as postpartum hair loss. Although this phenomenon is, in most cases, a natural process, it is not always very pleasant. Find out everything you need to know to treat postpartum hair loss and care for your curly, dry or frizzy hair.
How to treat postpartum hair loss with a healthy lifestyle
Postpartum hair loss in women can last up to 4 months, but fortunately there are ways to remedy or mitigate its effects. Because happiness is often on the plate, it is advisable to adopt a balanced diet to slow down hair loss in women. Proteins (meat, fish, legumes, etc.) and group B vitamins (dairy products, fish, egg yolks, poultry, bananas, nuts, etc.) are very good, as they are particularly useful for keratin synthesis. Brewer's yeast is also very effective in limiting hair loss in women, due to its rich content of essential amino acids, zinc, magnesium and vitamins B1, B2, B5, B6 and B9. However, the use of food supplements should not replace a balanced diet. If you have any doubts, feel free to ask your doctor for advice.
